Here is further info on the flags on the moon.  Though the one picture appears pixillated and possibly Photoshopped, there are many other photographic proofs of the flags still being in position at the lunar landing sites.  I think it's just a poor quality photo.


This time-lapse series by LRO shows shadows at one of the Apollo sites, and tracks made by one of the Lunar Rover Vehicles (LRV).

Re: Help

No yours was different.

try plugging it into your PC and running your camera capture software with a CAP on the lens. You should get black frames or very dark ones, if you pull the cap off you should get very light ones and/or white frames. If you get that much that will tell you your camera is detecting and transmitting. The issue is priarily with FOCUS of these little monsters. I believe I was able to focus and get images from both cameras in the daytime. Remember taking pictures of that Casita trailer down in the lower observing field?

I have not fiddled with mine since Green Bank. Other things going on.

I bought grandson a Canon 350d (used) DSLR for his birthday in a couple of days, maybe I have sparked an interest in photography with him. I was able to get the camera and lens for well under $200. I think he will be surprised. It is about six/seven years old and is a 6 MP camera, but should be just right for him to knock around with taking pictures of bugs and things.

Re: Help

Bob, you said the magic words. Chuck responded 16 minutes before you "off the group" but sounds like he doesn't know if he needs a handbox or not and wants to check his out first.

SOooo, I'll sell it to you (if it works) and maybe you and Chuck can get togather and check his out...<G>

Bob, I don't know where you're at but I will be at the Major Hillard branch library off George Washington Hwy tonight from 6-8PM at a NAS meeting. I can bring the handbox if you want to check it out then in the parking lot with you're mount...not having any Meade mounts anymore,I have no way of testing it. If that's not good for you we can arrange some other time at my place...extreme north Western Branch area of Chesapeake. I'm here all the time (have no life <G>) My cell is 757 373 0859...if you want to meet me at the library, give me a call.

Tks,
Stu

Well Bob, I suppose you did...sorta...however I miss read your e-mail as trying to explain the differences in the hand boxs.

I did however respond by saying that any reasonable offer would be fine...and I got none. This morning at "O dark thirty" Chuck outright asked me what I wanted for it and I responded off line with a price.

My apology is extended for miss reading your statement. I suppose i being too technical about this process and seem to get screwed up the last couple times out.

So here's the deal...I've already sold one for $25 (as memory serves)here in the group and this one is $25...First "I'll take it" gets it. I don't know if it works or not and would recommend plugging it in first. If it don't work...then no deal!

That's the best I can do.

Re: Help

I am mainly trying to TROUBLESHOOT the one I bought off of Astromart, it is most likely either the cable or the Autostar, or pehaps both. Either way I need to test my new (to me) Autostar & cable. I have no problems with Bob needing one and buying it now, I certainly am not interested in making anyone upset.

If someone brings an ETX to the Boardwalk Astronomy event tomorrow evening I can kill all my "birds" with one stone. If mine is broke, then either I will fix it or acquire a replcaement at that time.

I am using this on my ETX-70 which is a great little refractor for double stars and my solar funnel rig.

Thanks for the info, I have had "extensive" experience with Autostar 49x controllers and their associated ETX scopes and I have been through all of those actions. Motor still has a fault/stall. And it is not the scope. It seems Stu is going to help me out this evening.

When you first hook up the 497 to a scope you have to go through the set up and tell it you are using a etx 70 and then do a motor alignment that should take care of the problem you are having. If you have done that then you may need to update the firm ware in the 497 controller it easy to do if you have the right cable to do it. I dont member the part number for the cable but I know they are sold on eBay fairly cheap.

I bought a used Autostar 497 hand controller off of the Internet. It seems to have a problem. It could be the attached cable, it looks a little rough. I would like to know if anyone has a Meade Autostar 497 hand control and cable I could use to see if it actually works on my ETX 70. The Autostar 494 hand controller works just fine. With this Autostar 497 I encounter a motor fault after it starts to slew to the first alignment star. Like I stated, it slews just fine with the Autostar 494, so I know there is nothing wrong with the ETX 70.
